SonicOS 7 Getting Started Guide for NSsp 13700 and NSa Series


Today’s distributed IT—where end points are on premises, in the cloud, in the data center, at a branch office or in a home office—is creating an unprecedented explosion of exposure across organizations. As the exposure points to multiply, business risks continue to escalate, and each one needs to be protected from today’s sophisticated threats. SonicWall offers several firewall models to suit your business.

The NSa Series offers a mid-range solution. They are designed for businesses having 250 users and up. With cloud-based and on-box capabilities like TLS/SSL decryption and inspection, application intelligence and control, secure SD-WAN, real-time visualization, and WLAN management, the NSa Series provides flexible, fast and cost-effective security to keep the threats out.

To resolve similar challenges for enterprise-level customers, the SonicWall Network Security services platform (NSsp) is a high-end firewall series delivering advanced threat protection and fast speeds demanded by large enterprises, data centers and service providers. The NSsp 13700 is the enterprise firewall to replace existing NSa 9650 firewalls.

This document describes how to get started on one of the firewalls from the NSa Series or on the NSsp 13700. These systems run classic SonicOS 7. It also includes information on how to migrate the configuration settings from older firewalls to firewalls covered by this document.
